It's only been about a week since we learned that Jinger Duggar is courting Jeremy Vuolo, but since nothing the Duggars do is scandal-free these days, so it was only a matter of time before the tabloids dug up some dirt on Jinger's seeming squeaky-clean ex-soccer player.
InTouch revealed today that Vuolo, now 28, was arrested for harassing a police officer in 2008.
According to a report of the arrest, Vuolo was “was acting belligerent and shouting obscenities," which led to the officer asking him to pipe down.
Shockingly, Vuolo then made unspecified physical contact with the officer, who finally decided to arrest the unruly 20-year-old.
Vuolo was held in a cell overnight and released the next morning on $250 bail.
In fairness, Vuolo has been open about his "troubled past," but he got the courtship okay from Jim Bob, so we figured he was referring to the time that he walked past a guy who was smoking a cigarette on the street.
Instead, it seems Jeremy pulled some crap that a less privileged perp would still be doing time for.
“I was part of the college party scene and was living foolishly,” Jeremy has said of his past mistakes.
“I’m not perfect, but I sought out accountability and I now see great victory in my life.”
We know young athletes are getting away with a lot these days, but we hoped this whole "you have a bright future chasing a ball so here's your license to kill" trend was recent.
Instead, it seems it's the norm in many communities.
To be clear: we're not comparing what Jeremy did to the horrendous crimes committed by Brock Turner.
However, there's no denying that physical harassment of a police is a very serious charge - one that people are frequently sent to prison for.
We're not saying he the man deserves to be locked up for an idiotic decision when he made when he was in college, but it would be nice to see him take more responsibility for his actions.
This "It's not my fault! The college party scene is eeeeevil!" BS might be the worst trend 2016 has given us thus far.
